  • Straps for Aerialists with Dan Stern

    Register for Straps for Aerialists with Dan Stern

    Student level: Current Level 1 or above student in any apparatus (ideally fabric, rope or trapeze)
    Location: reVAMPed Studio on Cesar Chavez
    Price: $60 for 2 hours
    Date and Time: Monday April 6th 5-7pm

    Working on the aerial straps requires the body to support itself, and as such, is a great cross-training tool for all aerialists. Fundamental positions on straps teach excellent body awareness and can help stretch, strengthen and stabilize the shoulders, arms and core. Beyond being a wonderful apparatus for performance in its own right, training on straps can build strong, healthy bodies for any work in the air.

    Having trouble inverting in the air? There’s a drill for that! Can’t quite balance your back balance? There’s a drill for that! Want to let go of a rope, do a full twist in the air, and grab it again. There’s like, a million drills for that! This workshop is an all-level conditioning jam in which we will look at common blocks in strength and flexibility that keep students from reaching the next level of aerial glory. There will be time for students to troubleshoot specific skills and receive more personal training regimens specific to their needs.
